I was serious. I do not see what he described or what you say that you
also have here.

So let us compare situations. If you give me some examples I would be more
that happy to compare results.

There is a possibility that I just thought of and that would be
advertisements and Flash.

I use the extension named Adblock Plus. It blocks ads on web pages. I also
use Flash Block which is user configurable to allow or block Flash by
site. Do you?
